"Let the Little Children Come To Me........

.....and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it." - Mark 10: 14,15.

This time I am doing a different type of post. I just could not resist this opportunity.

This is little Annie, and with the permission of her Mommy who is my niece I am showing Annie in her new Easter dress.  All these pictures were taken by her mommy, a very good photographer. Isn't this the picture of perfect innocence!

Mommy is also a good seamstress and made this special dress for Annie to wear to church on Easter Sunday.

Annie is blessed to have parents who are Christians and she will also grow up to loving the Lord.  Children are innocent and fully open to life with a joy that adults sometimes lose.

We, as adults can learn a lot from little children. Their lives are founded on trust that their needs will be met. We can have that same trust in the one who loved us so much that He gave His life and was raised up by the Father.

Children innocently and spontaneously express what is within and possess a simple trust and harmlessness.

Oh, to be childlike and to become as one of them in trusting our Maker and our Caretaker.

We can have a sense of wonder, trust, dependence and obedience, wanting to please that One to whom we belong.
